Final Fantasy XV Will Take Around 50 Hours to Complete, Square Enix Targeting 30fps
The Uncovered Event for Final Fantasy XV is fast approaching and as the long wait for Final Fantasy XV appears to be coming to an end, the game’s director Hajime Tabata has been sharing more and more information regarding the game. Here are some key highlights from the interview. You can watch the entire interview on this link (starting at 26:56).
- Cactuars will make an appearance. They’re powerful opponents that will be able to dodge Shift Breaks.
- Square Enix will have plenty of surprises for their event on March 31st, and to expect a trailer in Japanese as well.
- The father of Final Fantasy in Hironobu Sakaguchi called out Tabata saying “Let me tell you my impression on the Final Fantasy XV demo.” While Tabata can’t say what they talked about, he mentions with a laugh that Sakaguchi had a whole lot to say.
- A playable tech demo will be properly shown at the event.
- As for the play time, at first Square Enix estimated that it would take about 40 hours to clear the main scenario, but this has since then been bumped up to 50 hours. They’re currently not at the final stages of balancing out the game, but making optimal balances. They say that the game has more volume than they thought it would.
- As for the Airship, it has been decided from long ago on how they would introduce it into the game. It’s something that would have you say “this is the kind of Airship that should be in Final Fantasy XV.”
- Maintaining a frame rate of 30fps is their objective. This has not been completely optimized as of yet, as there are times where it breaks 30. They will continue making adjustments until the last minute before the game goes gold. If they’re unable to fixate on the 30fps, they will do something different.
- As for the game’s resolution, it’ll be revealed at the release event on March 31st.
- As for a PS4 bundle version, Square Enix is working on making it happen
Do bear in mind that the 50 hour completion of the game DOES NOT include the sidequests, meaning it will probably take you at around 70+ hours to complete everything on the game. It is a reasonable length for an RPG game, or rather an action RPG game. Maybe a couple of those hours will be the emotional ending scenes that Tabata promised that will make the fans cry. Heh.
Final Fantasy XV is in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and is rumored to be released on September 30. Only a few more days until we can hear from Square-Enix for the final release date of the game. Can't wait.
